    If you can't keep a rooster, maybe you can find some white leghorns the same age and switch out for a pullet when he is not looking. The hens have big combs and he may not notice.

    Thank you yes sadly we might have to do this, even though he will definitely notice and so will his sister. :( They adore his crows in the morning now too.
